The City of Arlington Fire Department is pleased to announce 2 upcoming offerings of the Basic Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Course.

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

All CERT Basic Trainings for 2017 have been complete. The Schedule for 2018 will be published on this page no later than December 2017. If any changes are made to the schedule, the updates will be reflected on this webpage, as well as sent through social media pages.
